Airing on Friday, March 27, 2015:  We take a look at the European Union's upcoming investigation into how e-commerce sites like Amazon operate in its twenty-eight countries. There’s a concern that these companies are violating the EU’s antitrust laws by blocking cross border trade. Next, we talk with Pai-Ling Yin, a Social Science Research Scholar at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, about the proliferation of livestreaming services. And Ben Richmond, contributing editor to Vice’s Motherboard, joins us for this week's Silicon Tally!
